Studies suggest that using a “mindfulness approach can have a huge potential strategy for achieving and maintaining good health and well-being,” according to Thomas M. Barber, an associate professor at the University of Warwickshire in the UK.
Being overweight, and obesity, increases the risk of chronic diseases including hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Weight loss and mindfulness meditation, in combination, can have a significant positive impact on good health. “Learning the art of conscious breathing, eating with awareness and living in the moment is part of the practice of mindfulness,” says Kristin Bjarnason, R.N, CYT
